We thought it might be useful as we head into our New Year (and prior to the FOPL AGM at OLA Super Conference next week), that we post a good set of links to the formal submissions that FOPL made to the Ontario government in 2015.

In addition to our activities at Library Day at Queen’s Park and various conversations and representations at Town Halls and multiple ministries’ consultation events we made these written submissions:

  • Several submissions on e-Resources funding issue
  • Several submissions on e-Book pricing issue
